P.S. If people think I'm emotional now, just wait until I'm pregnant someday. "Uh-oh. Here comes the water slide." That will be a trip.

Jason and I made snowangels. I haven't made one of those in so many years. You can't see much from this picture. I had invisioned the perfect picture of our snowangels side by side. You can see how that worked out. :) Here we are after our snowball fight. Actually there weren't too many real snowballs. It isn't very good packing snow. Mostly our "snowballs" were hand (or arm) loads of snow being thrown at each other.
Aren't we adorable? :)

this was my view. I was seriously freaked out not being able to see anything. I had to try not to look at the windshield so I wouldn't freak out. At one point I looked up and saw the brake lights to the car in front of us and I kid you not they were right in front of us. So, I started yelling at Jason to "STOP" while freaking out even more because he wasn't stopping. Jason on the other hand was trying to figure out why I was screaming to stop the car since the car in front of us was actually pretty far away. Golly! What an adventure for a 3-5 mile car trip home. Needless to say we are home safe and sound and not planning any trips out tonight even though we have a movie that's overdue. Sigh! More money. We didn't get it returned yesterday and we brought it with us to return after we ate but we thought it was more important to get home. I hate paying late fees. Such a waste of money if you aren't even watching the movie anymore. So we paid $2.60 for the movie and now it will be 2 days late. Does that mean we have to pay $5.20 more? Probably so. The really irritating thing is that you could pay $2.60 for one night or $3.10 for 5 nights. They always try to put it in the computer for 5 nights so as to get more money. We want to save money so we always tell them we only want it for one night. See how well that worked out for us? (Could you feel the sarcasm dripping off that one?) :) Oh, well. What's done is done. We'll just have to pay $7.80 for a darn movie (we could have bought it for not much more than that) and move on. Maybe I can sled there. Alas! No sled.

Here are my parents and their 6 kids. What a special day. I'm so grateful that families are forever. Aaron leaves for the MTC on February 3rd. My Dad joined the church while he was in Vietnam and my Mom joined soon after in Illinois. Now all 6 of thier children will have served missions. Amazing isn't it?

We had wanted to go to my parents house before Christmas but it never worked out. I mentioned this once before about how I went ahead without Jason because he was sick. Yes, I left my poor sick husband all alone. At least I took the dog so he didn't have to care for her........He wanted me to go I promise. :) Anyway here are a few pictures of things we did that weekend. Here is a picture of my parents Christmas tree. I love my parents house at Christmas. There are so many good memories there.
Here is my Mom and my nephew Zach (7) making huge bubbles. It didn't work too well. Maybe it was the soap they used but it did make a few bubbles as you can see from the picture.
We went bowling on one of the days. It was pretty fun. My sisters, Amy and Karen, Zach and I were on our own lane and it kept messing up and not registering a roll so we got to roll an extra time. That was nice. Once I got a strike that should have been a spare. Oh yeah! We rock! :) Zach's ball looked like it had a face so here he is imitating the ball.
